Mathematics Diana Roscoe & Crystal Lancour Orientation to the Prioritized Curriculum and Common Core State Standards (CCSS) Welcome!

Purpose To help teachers begin to understand Delawares Prioritized Curriculum and the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Distinguish between the Prioritized Curriculum and CCSS. Explore connections between the Prioritized Curriculum and CCSS. How will teaching, learning, and assessment be affected over the next several school years? 2

Module A In this module we will: Re-visit the components of Delawares previous mathematics standards. Demonstrate how the Delaware mathematics standards were updated through the prioritization process. Briefly describe how the CCSS differ from the current Prioritized Curriculum. Connect to future modules, training, and integration of the CCSSI. 3

Previously… The 2006 version of the DE mathematics standards (2008 for HS) was divided into two sections. Content Standards Numeric Reasoning Algebraic Reasoning Geometric Reasoning Quantitative Reasoning Process Standards Problem Solving Reasoning Communication Connections Standard GLEs 4

Updated Standards 2010 The mathematics standards were prioritized in 2009 to determine the content on which instructional time should focus. A team of teachers worked to narrow the focus of the DE mathematics standards and each GLE was categorized as one of the following: Essential – 70% of instructional time Important – 25% of instructional time Compact – 5% of instructional time 5

Updated Standards 2010 Prioritizing the Curriculum Process Delaware educators worked with Learning Focused school consultants in 2009 to prioritize the Delaware Standards and GLEs. The Prioritizing the Curriculum Process enables Delaware educators to make decisions about how to focus instructional time regarding the standards and GLEs. The statewide Prioritizing the Curriculum materials were used to rank the GLEs as Essential, Important, and Compact. Working Definitions of Essential, Important, and Compact Essential refers to the most important ideas or concepts for all students to understand at a greater depth. This learning supports a big idea or enduring understanding. Learning that is essential is necessary for all students to know, understand, and be able to do. Important refers to the key knowledge and skills that support student understanding of the essential knowledge. This includes learning that students have experienced before at earlier grades and may require review and/or explicit connections to the new concepts of the grade. Compact refers to the knowledge, understanding, and skills that most students have already developed fully at previous grade levels or that are not critical to the essential ideas and concepts at that grade level. These may be items that require only reminders rather than explicit instruction. *Note: In the upper grades, COMPACT may refer to a review of content. In lower grades, COMPACT may refer to content that is new and is being introduced to students for the first time. Adapted from Learning Focused Power Curriculum Manual. 6

Updated Standards 2010 The previous version of the standards were updated with the coding of E, I, or C as shown below in red. These can be found by accessing the content standards website at: http://www.doe.k12.de.us/infosuites/staff/ci/content_areas/math.shtml 7 Coding

And now… CCSSI Released June 2, 2010 http://www.corestandards.org/ 8

CCSS The CCSS are organized into two grade clusters: K – 8 and 9 – 12. 9

In this series of four modules… You will get a brief introduction and overview of the CCSS. During professional learning communities throughout the next school year, you will unpack and dig deeper into the document to make connections to future instructional planning. 10

And so we leave you with… 11 "The secret to my success is that I bit off more than I could chew and chewed as fast as I could."
